Too Bad She Couldn’t Profit!

I just read that at the June 13, 2011 Christie’s auction in London that an original copy of Maria Sybilla Merian’s first book (Das Blumenbuch) sold for £565,250 or $915,564.02!
I had once had the passing thought that it would be nice to have one of her originals…good thing it was just a passing thought. Wow!
